    I did a silly thing this morning, i got up out of my chair fast and didnt notice the dvd door was open on my hard drive

    I hit it with leg, now it won't open and close correctly. It opens a little bit but stops

    Assuming there isn't a disk inside, as it opens, give it a firm assist (like pulling open a filing cabinet drawer).
    I don't know why it would stick as it's practically impossible to force the drawer out of its slides - there is not enough room.
    If all else fails, remove the drive and release the clips (top, bottom sides) holding the plastic faceplate to the chassis.
    The metal chassis fits together like a clamshell, there may also be a couple of screws on the underside holding top to bottom.
    Once the screws are out, the clamshell can be pried apart exposing the drawer.

    Hello

    Thanks for responding, i can get it open, it won't open and close on it's own, i think i may have hit it out of alignment ?
